TO THE PUBLIC.
USKKl'L inforniatiiin for those interested in the erection of buildings, artistic as well as durable. Much money
has been spent on larjje buildings, without considering progressive ideas of construction, or pleasing effects
in Architecture. One of the greatest points to be considered is the scientific, as well as the practical, manipu-
lation of all raw material entering into these structures.
Long experience has taught me that nothing is too good in the way of material, and I spare no time or expense
to secure the best results obtainable in preparing the plans and specifications, and superintending the construction. Vou
may have an elegant set of plans, and if the builder does not follow them, the owner is the loser, and the architect has to
shoulder the blame. So many of our profession understand the theory but are unable to put the same into practical execution.
On the following pages of this brochure will be found a few suggestions to the public, also a few cuts of a few buildings
executed in my office.

Believing that true merit should have its reward, we, tlie County Commissioners of Columbia County, Florida,
desire to say to you that our new Court Mouse, just completed and accepted, is the pride of our entire people. It has
l)een remarked by many, amon^ whom were our Governor and State Comptroller, that our building, in architectural
design, attractiveness, comfort and convenience, has no equal in Florida. We are perfectly satisfied. And you, as the
Architect of this building, have the gratitude of our whole people, and you should feel proud of your handiwork.
With the best of wishes for your future continued success, we are.
Yours very truly,

" Resolved, That the thanks of the Board of Commissioners of Wythe County be tendered to .Mr. Frank I'. Mil-

both in plan and construction, of which the County may be justly proud."

CHARLOTTE'S FINE COURTHOUSE.
A FEATURE of improvements in the South is the many new municipal buildings that have been erected, are
under contract, or in contemplation. Considerable attention is given to the introduction of progressive ideas in
these structures, and as a result there is to be seen many pleasing examples of Architecture in this direction.
Herewith is illustrated the New Temple of Justice for Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. It is one of the best
in the .State. It occupies the site of Queen Anne's Museum, built in 1776, on Tryon street. The building is of
fireproof construction, 75.\i2o feet, with granite foundations and approaches. Buff brick and buff stone facade, marble
floors, and hardwood finish add to the beauty of the building. It is regarded as a remarkable building for the cost,
f5o,ooo, and much credit is given the County Commissioners for the wisdom of their choice. The Architect, Frank P.
Milburn, of Columbia, S. C, and Charlotte, N. C, was selected, after plans prepared by twenty-seven prominent Architects
from all parts of the United States had been examined. The principal entrance is quite imposing, with open portico
above, surmounted by a large dome of pleasing proportions. — Manufacturers' Record, October 2, 1896.

To Whom it may Concern:
This is to certify that the Building Committee of the new Court House of Charlotte, N. C, adopted plans submit-
ted by Frank P. Milburn, Architect, for our new Court House, the same being in their judgment the best design sub-
mitted, from more than twenty Architects
During the construction of our building, we found Mr. Milburn a practical man, and his plans have given us
entire satisfaction. Yours truly, (Signed) Jno. R. Erwi.v, Chairman.

Mr. FRANK P. MILBURN, Anderson, S. C Aug. 1, 189H.
Charlotte, N. C.
At a meeting of our Building Committee todav, wliich perhaps will be tlie last held, it was unanimously agreed
that we should not adjourn without expressing our entire satisfaction with you as a man wlio will carry out to the letter
his contracts. You have intelligently and conscientiously discharged every duty and obligation imposed upon you by
reason of being the Architect of the new Court House and Jail for Anderson County.
The Court House is given up to be the handsomest County building in the State, and our people all laud their
praises of both the Jail and Court House.
There has not been a hitch between the Building Committee and the Contractors, and both buildings have been
completed according to the plans and specifications furnished by you, and this speaks worlds or the Architect.
In addition, we want to say that you have made friends of this entire committee, and that you are at liberty to
refer at anv and all times to either of us. Respectfully, (Signed) VV. P. Snelgrove, Chairman.

The Architect is regarded as an almost useless expense by some people. There must be some reason why this
profession should be so little understood. Architecture is in its nature a peculiar profession, a combination of art,
science and business. The aim of all good Architects from earliest antiquity has been to build permanently and to
build nobly. Civilization has no exponent more sensitive than Architecture, for it is an art not only absolutely indis-
pensable, but which adapts itself practically and aesthetically to the conditions of things among which it grows.
The charges of all reputable Architects are the same. It is poor economy to employ a man who does not know his
business because his price is less. Vou pay more for what you get, but do not know it.
. . . . . . . "You shall see a man
Who never drew a line or struck an arc
Direct an Architect and spoil his work.
Because, forsooth! he likes a "tasteful " house;
He likes a muffin, but he does not go
Into the kitchen to instruct his cook —
Nay, that were insult. He admires fine clothes,
But trusts his tailor. Only in those arts
Which issue from creative potencies
Does his conceit engage him. He could learn
The baker's trade, and learn to cut a coat,
But never learn to do that one great thing
Which he essays."
— /. G. Holland.
Heavy excavations should not l)e made during July and August in our southern climate.
Lay foundations with cement mortar. In freezing weather keep the brick dry; in hot weather wet them.
All floors should be double. The rough floor in frame buildings should extend to siding iind will make a very
good fire-stop, as this will catch falling mortar from the plastering.
Make wide verandas, and avoid using sap flooring.
Avoid openings to attic or resting places for birds at the cornice line.
Do not lay wood shingles in lead paint; it rots them.
Use only dry lumber for finish, and avoid using green lumber in the frame.
Attics should be well ventilated to carry out the heated air between ceiling and roof.
Chimneys should be built from the ground. Make walls of flues not less than 8 inches thick; flues for stove, 8
inches square; flue for fireplace n;it less than 8x12 inches.
Two-thirds of the fires are caused by defective flues and 4-inch walls. Chimney tops should be laid in cement
Hearths for fireplaces should be laid in cement mortar in order to prevent rats and mice from undermining them-
Avoid carpet strips l>etween connecting doors. They are troublesome to the housekeeper.
See that your gas or electric outlets are located to be convenient, and in the places most needed.
.See that proper spaces are provided for beds, bureaus, buffets, etc.
Doors should not open into closets or hallways.
Doors to buildings where large gatherings are held should open outside.
Locate dining-room according to prevailing breeze in summer.
Closets, moth-proof, can be had by using cedar ceiling.
Provide picture moulding. This saves the damage to plastering.
Staircases should be wide, well lighted, and have wide step with easy rise; 6>i inches is good heigh'.
Avoid winding stairways, esfiecially in |>ublic buildings.
When you have decided to build, consult a first-class Architect, who should be a master builder.
The charges of all reputable Architects are the same. It is poor economy to employ a man who does not know
his business, at any price.

VARNISH IN ARCHITECTURE.
\N()\'A, the sculptor, once told a would-be critic that perfection
was made up of trifles, and that perfection was no trifle, and this
trite sayinjj^ may be well applied to Architecture. Because of their
fidelity to the trifles of their art, the names of Phidias and Canova
are as imperishable as their wonderful marbles.
If the " trifles " of modern Architecture were looked after as closely,
there is one important feature of a building that would be the better for it,
and that is the interior finish.
Just as surely as a trifle of a line under Canova's skilled hand meant
the development of a muscle, or an expression that should lend grace, dig-
nity and majesty to his work, so the interior finish either lends grace to the
Architect's work, or mars it.
Varnish is admitted to be a bigger " trifle " than it was once consid-
ered, for it is Varnish that makes or mars the appearance of an interior.
The finest interiors are finished with BERRY BROTHKR.S ARCHITEC-
TrRAI- FINISH KS.
